Additive Manufacturing Meets Miniaturization

One of the new frontiers in Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the production of high-resolution, high-accuracy microstructures for industrial applications. These parts are not only difficult to prototype using existing 3D printers, they are often much more expensive and complicated to manufacture. In this webcast, we discuss a unique process called Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) for printing true microstructures with ultra-high resolution (2µm~50µm) and tolerance (+/- 10µm ~ +/- 25µm). You’ll also hear from BMF customer Empire Group, who will discuss how they are using the technology to service their customers who are demanding smaller and more precise parts.

Tune in to learn:

  1. why PµSL is a game changer in electrical, medical, and microfluidic applications;
  2. how to prepare your design files (CAD models) for micro-scale printing;
  3. AM’s advantages over traditional manufacturing.
